Naniwa Whetstone Set 1000/3000:

This budget whetstone set is miles ahead with features.
Instead of one combination whetstone Naniwa has released an intelligent solution:
Two stones in one pack.
Complete with a storage case that doubles are a drying solution and a sharpening stand.

Better than your normal combination whetstone.
Two Stones in one Pack for the same price!

A versatile storage case that up until now only Shapton offer!

Sadly combination Stones are not always made by all companies and sometimes for good reasons.
Some include:
-Combo Whetstones should not be fully submerged for soaking: The two stones will expand at different rates and you risk cracking one side as a result.

-One side of the stone will likely wear faster than the other.

Both problems are circumvented thanks to Naniwa’s innovation.

I would recommend getting a lower coarse grit for knife repair and edge reshaping to make life easier. A 300-500 should be suffice.
Although you can sharpen on stands such as these, I recommend a Sharpening table/ Sink Bridge.

    These stones are fabulous for the home “chef” who likes to keep their knives in tip top condition . Great price for 2 stones . The service from Blade Runner is impeccable. Extremely fast delivery . Do yourself a favour and give them a go .

      Thanks John,

      Contact me for more info.

    Stones are exquisite, very luxurious feel. Getting two stones and a case for the price was exactly what I was after. 1000/3000 grit is the sweet spot for most people I suspect.

    Service from The Blade Runner was exceptional, I don’t normally leave reviews but I only pulled the trigger on these stones after the review from John above. Was very fast and professional, would definitely come back for more.

    Awesome product for a beginner like me. With the help from some YouTube videos, I managed to get my 10 year old German steel knives razor sharp (literally able to shave with) again with this whetstone set. I would highly recommend this set to anyone who wants to give whetstones a go but doesn’t want want to pay top dollar for something they may not be in to later on.

    Excellent whetstones and terrific value for money. You could spend more but I certainly wouldn’t recommend spending less, if you value your knives.

    Great stone at a good price. I bought this because I wanted a 3000 grit because I use the kings kds 1000/6000 and I wanted to go 1,3,6. Personally if I could only choose between the 1000/3000 naniwa and the kings kds 1000/6000, I’d choose the kings all day long. The kings is better personally at a similar price point. This however does not mean the naniwa is bad, it’s actually absolute excellent hence the 5 star. I like these stones. The case can be a bit difficult to use when sharpening as one side doesn’t stay down when trying to sharpen, however to remedy this I’ll just cut off 1 side of the case because meh. Awesome service on this site as usual.
